Key Pointers: Tawny
If you see one in winter, it’s probably a Tawny, as the other three are summer visitors. If you see a male and female together, it’s most likely a Tawny or Wahlberg’s – these two breed here, while the other two breed in Eurasia. Tawny is a big eagle with a heavy bill. Its plumage varies a lot, but they often look scruffy with different colours, and many are an orange-brown (tawny) colour.
